“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had stayed here before but the pool was really cold. This time we were very surprised to have a heated pool. It was wonderful after a long trip. We love the bartender named Amy. She is a lot of fun. The rooms are clean and this time I had a breakfast sandwich and it was delicious.

Thanks again for a nice stay and next time we go to a Red Sox game we will stay here!!

We have stayed at the ALOFT in Lexington, MA 5 times. This past weekend was the 1st time we had any complaints.There were 3 things broken in the room when we checked in late at night(blinds couldn't be lowered, TV remote was broken and the toilet didn't flush properly). To the credit of the hotel staff they fixed all 3 things within a reasonable amount of time. The nice thing about this hotel is it's friendly staff, modern style, complimentary coffee & tea early (515AM) in the lobby and good location. It's located just off a major highway (Rt.95) and is literally on the Minuteman hiking/biking trail. For those who want to go into Boston it's about a 20 minute drive. It's also near a major retail mall yet the setting of the property makes you feel you are away from all the hustle and bustle and traffic. Overall, a very nice place. We would definitely go again. Full disclosure...we have family who live in Arlington (15 minutes away) that we visit.

We stayed here for 3 days while we were in town for our wedding. We picked it after looking at pictures online because we wanted somewhere that would look good for the pre-wedding photos from the photographer - and we weren't disappointed. Everything looked as pictured and was clean.

The bedrooms seem adequate size for us - we had lots of people in and out and gathering in the rooms and they didn't feel any smaller than other hotels I've been in. The only strange thing was the bathroom door slid closed and didn't seem to offer as much privacy as a normal one.

The breakfast wasn't free, but was good (and reasonably priced) and lots of options - we had breakfast sandwiches two mornings in a row.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The kids in the wedding party checked out the pool for a little bit - which was clean, modern, and pretty warm (although no hot tub).

One plus we didn't expect was that they have a full bar, lounge area, and pool table in their lobby. When time was up at our wedding venue some of our party headed back with us and we all hung out there. I was a little worried they'd be upset we were a bigger group or too loud - but there were other groups there and we had no problems having a good time. They did last call for the bar at 12:00, but we stayed almost 2 more hours.

I really enjoyed my stay. I do have to say that it does not matter what age you are to enjoy Aloft. I am not in my 20's and I thought it was great. The stuff was very helpful and kind. I think the place was so refreshing from other places that I have stayed.. Neat - clean- bright I could go on. I got there very late on May 2nd. Brent was very much on his game. Upbeat and friendly. On my way to Texas so going to check that one out as well. Thanks again to all of the stuff there that made my stay great. Joan

This is not your average business traveler hotel. They clearly are trying to create a "different" experience, and I personally enjoyed it. Very modern, hip, and clearly geared toward a younger crowd. I stayed for two nights while visiting my company's Waltham office. It's a little tricky to find, as it is tucked behind a mountain, but it is very conveniently located near the highway. The lobby area is a large, open space, with a bar/lounge, and a food/snack area in the corner. It's a very social environment, with semi-loud pop music playing throughout the main areas and elevators. The front desk is more like a retail checkout counter, right in the middle of the room. While I arrived late the first night (after the bar had closed), on the second evening the lounge was very popular, with probably 20+ people in the bar, pool table, and lounge areas. The food/snack area was well stocked with grab and go items, and offered a pretty decent cooked to order breakfast menu (not free though). There is no traditional restaurant. The modern styled room wasn't all that large, but offered a nice comfortable platform bed, a desk looking out the window with a cool device to hook your electronics into the large flat screen TV, and a unique closet / divider between the main room and bathroom. The large windows were great for natural light / views, but also had good blackout shades for sleeping. They included a free bottle of water each day, and there is a small fridge, but no microwave. My only complaints were no iron & ironing board in the room (had to request from the front desk), and the doors to the rooms don't have adequate dampers, so they "slam" loudly when guests let them close by themselves at all hours of the day and night. Overall, I appreciated the unique experience, and will gladly return to stay on my next business trip to the area.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, but sure to request a "quiet" room on an upper floor, as some...

This hotel had a great vibe to it. The lobby area was modern and more than just your typical hotel lobby. The space was large and open and included a lounge area with couches and fireplace, a bar area, a sitting/eating area with small tables, a pool table, computers and ipads for use, and even some board games in the lounge! There was also a small area where food was available. There hotel also had an indoor pool, and although my husband and I did not visit, my nieces and nephews had a good time.

The staff was really friendly and never seemed bothered by any requests. The breakfast sandwiches provided in the lobby are pretty tasty. The staff didn't even get upset when we came downstairs to order 8 breakfast sandwiches about 5 minutes before they were to stop serving breakfast. The cook was insistent on making us another sandwich and then gave us the original mishap free of charge when we realized that the order had been put in the computer wrong.

The rooms were quite nice, and pretty modern and stylish. The rooms had two really large windows which were great for natural lighting, but also had very dark shades in order to keep morning light out. Everything was clean and tidy feeling. There was also a small fridge in the room, no microwave though.

The one downside to this hotel was it's thin walls and really heavy doors. We could hear everything in the hallways, even people just speaking in normal voices. On top of that, every time someone left their room and didn't shut the door, but let it shut itself, we heard it slam, and it was fairly loud at late hours of the night and early hours of the morning.

Beside that small, irritating factor, this hotel was really nice. We stayed here in order to attend a wedding and it was perfect for what we needed. The wedding guests even headed to the hotel after the wedding reception and hung out in the lobby area at the bar, playing pool, and playing board games in the lounge area until almost 1 am. They had staff and music going for us, it was a nice atmosphere and really fun.

i stayed at this hotel for work and i am not a spg person but it was the closest hotel to the client i needed to go to. I booked two nights and only needed one and they said they wanted to charge me for the extra night. I have never needed to pay extra for nights that i didn't need to stay with other hotels. When i ended up getting up to my room the rooms were situated the same way as other ALOFTS. two beds with the desk in the front near the windows and the bathrooms behind with closet behind. The rooms are okay. My problem with the hotel was the sound coming from some sort of party that was going on that night. I called the hotel to complain and this was around 11:30 or so. The first response i got was "Hold on its too loud". So i asked the front desk what is going on its very loud. They told me it should end shortly. Shortly meant 1AM in the morning. There is no breakfast in the morning that was complimentary. I also went to the gym during my stay and did they not have water in the gym. Normally gyms would have a water dispenser. They did however not charge me for water from the store they had. The hotel may be a bit hard to find since it is on top of a mountain but if you were to choose i would go with the ELEMENT next door. Their rooms are much more spacious and they offer full kitchen and free breakfast options and dinner!

Room Tip: dont choose the room with loud music

Dear kevin l,
Thank you for sharing your feedback on your most recent stay. We're sorry your stay was not as comfortable as you would have liked and the noise from the lobby area kept you up. Every week we typically have Stump Trivia on Tuesdays and a Live at Aloft Hotel performance every other Thursday at w xyz bar. We, unfortunately, do not have free breakfast at Aloft Hotels. However, we do provide different breakfast options from cereal, fruit, yogurt and granola bars to made-to-order breakfast. All of these choices can be found in our 24/7, grab and go pantry, re:fuel. Thanks so much for sharing we hope to host you again the next time you're traveling to the Lexington area.
